Everybody Let's Rock - From Japan With Love Vol. 3 - E. P. Collector

Everybody Let's Rock - From Japan With Love Vol. 3 - E. P. Collector


Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label is another exciting new release. 
Our next CD is titled "Everybody Let's Rock" (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2017-11) 
Recorded live from the audience in Las Vegas, NV, August 5th, 1972, D/S and M/S, this 2CD-set is subtitled "From Japan With Love Vol. 3" because it was recorded by a member of a Japanese fan club. 
The Las Vegas, August 5th, 1972 Dinner show was first released in 2008 on the CD "Directly From The 1972 Elvis Summer Festival". This earlier CD was taken from different, inferior source tape. Our new recording is of much better sound quality. The Las Vegas, August 5th, 1972 Midnight show is previously unreleased.

There is no need to discuss the fact that ALL shows from August/September 1972 are excellent! Natural highlights are especially ballads like "What Now My Love", ''An American Trilogy", "My Way" or "For The Good Times" and rock’n’rolls like „A Big Hunk O’Love” or "Johnny B. Goode" One song from Midnight show stands out: a cool, one-off of "Jailhouse Rock"! Needless to say that this is a rarity for 1972, and what a great version it is too - it easily beats all other 70's versions.

Both concerts are taken from a recently found first generation copies of original audience recorded cassette tapes. They were never before available in listenable sound, until now! You may ask your supplier for samples.

This CD is packaged in a nicely designed double digipak with great collection of quality images taken in August 1972. 
If you enjoyed some of our other releases such as "Rock & Soul… And Some Mighty Fine Rock’n’Roll" and "The Make The World Go Away", then you sure to enjoy our latest release. 
As with all our releases, this CD is a labour of love and hope you enjoy it. We are planning another CD taken from those "Japanese" tapes. So stay tuned!

Spliced Takes - Nashville Revisited - CMT / STAR

Spliced Takes - Nashville Revisited - CMT / STAR


Another "must have" release in this great series, this time even more edits/splices were done to make an exceptional album, where tracks sound so much different then what is out there, no fake overdubs , but some tracks have been overdubed, using snippets from the actual "recording sessions" 
DEVIL IN DISGUISE for example does not fade out, but has a great new ending, including TWO guitar solos. 
GOLD IN THE MOUNTAINS has been overdubbed with a more fuller drumbeat on some parts, and has been extended. 
LIKE A BABY "you do the intro" Elvis said during the session, but here, we have Elvis himself playing it, and on the end, the guitar has been included once more. 
DIRTY, DIRTY FEELING sounds so much different since lots of parts from the session have been included, and it's Elvis who does the ending "Gone..." instead of Ray Walker. 
STRANGER IN THE CROWD , no complete outtake of this song excists, here we get an extended "rehearsal" version, which sound wonderful 
IT AIN'T NO BIG THING again our man does the intro, and a very different version is made. 
I'LL NEVER KNOW here outtakes are combined with the master overdubs. 
We could go on, but you know what to do... PRE ORDER this baby now, and enjoy it yourself!! 
On the first "Nashville" most tracks were from the sixties. Here we get a good portion of seventies selections, and well as a fifties track... all recorded in Nashville....
